If I have a component id (for example tcm:9-123), is there a way to get its content? How can this be achieved in java ?

  • Is that components are DCP?

  • No, not DCP. We have based it on dxa's webapp-java project

  • Did you mean, if we are using DCP model to assemble content from the Content Data Store, then yes.

In general, you can’t get the content of Components separately on the CD side.

You can get the content of a Dynamic Component Presentation, though. In DXA, DCPs are represented as Entity Models with an ID like <ComponentID>-<TemplateID>. For example: 123-234 for a DCP of Component tcm:x-123 rendered with Template tcm:x-234-32.

You can use ContentProvider.getEntityModel for this purpose.
